    Yes, but all the others who were freed from the wall were freed with their original personalities intact. According to Matt Fraction, Betsy Braddock was killed. Why are people worshiping a character who has neither her original body nor even an established personality?

    What Matt Fraction says does not matter. It's all about Remender as he is now her primary writer

    Well, I guess Psylocke is the only character who is an ethnic minority wherever she is.
